Nice £30 saving which still seems like an awesome tablet. Not for me as I want the 9.7" version but certainly cheaper than Argos instore.

I'd be interested to know why this is cold, as I've been considering getting one of these and this seems like a pretty good price.

​I think there's more apple users than Samsung users on this app.
i keep remembering that not long ago it was £289 at john lewis and came with a free £30 charger.

I'm currently the former, thinking of becoming the latter...

Ooh, worth keeping an eye out in case that happens again then.

​maybe. it was 289 at argos too. I think the temporary s2 reduction may have been in anticipation of the s3 price being lower.
Well this has been a disappointing thread: I'd just about talked myself into getting one of these at the normal price of £330, but given that people think it's a bad deal for £30 less, I'm back to being undecided now

​They're both good in their own ways, but I think you always get more out of an android phone than you do with an apple, at a cheaper price too.

If you're talking about a £400 budget then your only options are either this, Nvidia Shield K1, the new iPad (2017/£330) or the 9.7" Tab S2. This is a great price despite the hate - I can't find a better price

Yeah, I'm looking for a small tablet to replace my aging Mini 1: I treated to myself to a Mini 4 when the price dropped, but it had a yellow screen as did all of the replacements (and no, it wasn't Night Shift), so I gave up and started considering Android instead.

This does seem to be the most highly recommended small Android, and I haven't been able to find a better (current) price either.

It depends on with OS you want to go with. If you want Android I'd either say this or the Shield K1, you can't go wrong with either.

​Not sure I'd agree with those being only options.

Personally I'd prefer this which has more RAM, quicker processor and a better screen.

The screen is slightly larger, 8.4 and a widescreen ratio rather than 4:3 which I personally prefer for movies. Android 7 also confirmed as on the way shortly.

I wouldn't be so sure. If this is the tablet I've seen their SoC isn't that great at driving the 2k display. I'm not really a fan of non-SD based Android devices.

This is a great review I found of the M3.
I've seen that plus many other reviews, expert and private and they're generally positive. Always pros and cons, just mentioning there are other options and I certainly prefer the Huawei.

Ofcourse, a consideration nonetheless. I mean surely the fact their SoC can't give a decent balance of performance suggest a device that has cons that outweigh the positives surely?

Not trashing your choice or opinion but I'm merely just saying if a device doesn't perform that well then surely you'd be better spending that little extra? It's mainly the reason for me not including it in my original list.
The M3 was the other one I'd been looking at actually.
The reason i don't think it's a great deal, despite what current prices look like, is that i got the first Tab S 10.5" less than a year after release from Samsung for £250 and i still think it's the better tablet.

Different times i suppose.

Different times, different pricing and of course Brexit.

So you got that time machine I can borrow? (_;)

In regards to spec, they're both the same. The Tab S2 was a minor upgrade to the S line and is why it really isn't a game changer. Both had 3GB RAM and the same-performing CPU. The only difference was the start of Samsung shifting to 4:3 aspect ratios on their displays - a move, personally, should have been done from the start.

It's starting to show a trend really something that Apple has done for years since the first gen iPad back in 2010 or so and Samsung have taken 4 years to get to this point. I'm not slating either but I certainly have been wanting a 4:3 tablet from Samsung for a long time.

Nope, no time machine, don't need one. I did my research, paid attention and saved my pennies for when needed.
